jackson jr., the son of the rev. jesse jackson holding on to his illinois house seats. of course he has been fighting depression to map out of public view for months now. and so the republican opponents thought, well, i might be able to unseat this guy. look at that margin. even with a guy who did not campaign. essentially being hospitalized about the public view completely you know, complete confusion. what's going on. no accounting for what he's doing. no accounting for the status of his health, and he still wins in the walk. as we go through some of the other races, we can look at the texas senate. ted crews will pick up this victory. that would be a very, very big win. right now, of course, really electrified republican conventioneers and talked about the latino appeal within the republican party. they hope that this will be a sign that latinos would gravitate to that ted cruises and others and say maybe the republican party is opening its arms to latinos and general. again, it remains to be seen, but that is a big pickup. a guy who was barely know a little more than a year ago movi
despite a hard fought campaign swing state not talk about it is nor romney. peter jackson talk show host. also with us talk show host on radio ben ferguson. if the economy was the number one issue 75 percent said we are voting on the economy and if romney led on the economy, which the polls indicate how did he lose? >> i think a lot of it is that one issue which is the ex factor. barack obama at the end of the day is a very likeable guy. there is a lot of people who voted for him that said by golly i like this guy and i am going to give him another shot. unemployment numbers aren't where he said there would be. didn't cut the deficit in half. those that are on food stamp numbers has risen by 17.7 million but i like him. it's the x factor you saw with bill clinton. he could almost do no wrong and recover from anything. that is something that transc d transcended into this election. when you saw the president come out in the way he did side by side with chris christie that we saw even in new jersey that obviously is a powerful picture. i think that's the reason he is still the president o

and on your tenure here in the house. you will be missed. the jackson-vanik amendment, mr. speaker, was a product of the cold war. when the communist threat was ever present, communist countries had little or no rights. as mr. rohrabacher, our friend from california, just said, we need to recognize that today's russia while hardly a perfect place when it comes to human rights and political expression is not the soviet union. we need a positive framework, economic, political, social, to move forward. this pntr, normalizing trade relations, allows us to wrangle with russia when we think they are wrong in trade disputes at the world trade organization. absent this normalization, we don't have that leverage. furthermore, the committee is to be really commended as is my colleague from massachusetts, mr. mcgovern, for creating a statutory framework for addressing one of the most egregious human rights violations in modern russian history involving sergei magnitsky. this framework could ultimately be a model, frankly, as we move forward in other parts of the world as well, but it certainl
